Staycation Day 10

Almost last day of projects around the house, focused on my office and craft corner, still not great but way better than it was:


In the evening, my mighty Sun Devils were playing in the last bowl game of the season, the Cactus Bowl, so we had a few folks over for Fajitas, margaritas and Mexican Mules – mmmm.  Food and friends were great, losing to West Virginia by one point was not so awesome…


Staycation Day 3

Husky Football Saturday!  Huskies kicked off at 11:20am in the Heart of Dallas Bowl vs. Southern Mississippi.  Our usual tailgating crew came over, and while the game was much closer than it probably should have been, the Huskies won!  (phew)

Today we went biking…

with Jamie Moyer!  yes, All Star pitcher, former Mariner, Jamie Moyer – how weird is that?  as you know, we love doing bike tours when we travel, so in Melbourne we signed up for a tour with Freddy’s Bike Tour.  We met up in federation Square, and as we looked for our guide, I noticed a large family also looking for a bike tour – I’ll admit, I was a little bummed at first  when I realized this family would be on our tour because they were a big group with a couple young kids I figured may slow us down or be difficult to wrangle.  As we all gathered up I looked at the dad and thought he looked really familiar, but the family said they were from California so I didn’t think about it much.  Looking at the mom and all the girls, they were decked out in LuLuLemon and colorful nikes so I knew that had $$$, and moved on.


As the ride commenced, BK started chatting with the mom though and she mentioned they used to live in Magnolia.  And the kids had lots of Notre Dame gear.  And there were a lot of kids. And the dad was retired.  And everyone was really fit.  Slowly my brain started to piece things.  At one point I started biking with the mom and all was confirmed once the Moyer Foundation was mentioned.   They had been up at Hayman Island first – a spot I noticed in a travel mag YEARS ago and have dreamed about since, and now were in Melbourne for a few before the kids needed to get back to school.


So random!  so crazy!
